Re: Art teachers are the BEST!

I have a herniated disk. I've learned to live with it. Pain was terrible for
about a month and then leveled off. Changed my whole life though. I decided
not to have the surgery after hearing the horror stories. Exericse helps me
keep the muscles strong in my back and it's been almost 6 years with only a
few problems.
 I also did it at work. I was teaching preschool and the work crew moved the
furniture to wax the floors. As I was the first one in, I moved it back. My
disc is between 8th and 9th vertibrae which is very high in my back. I spent
a full week on my back and can no longer sleep in my waterbed. Had to get a
new mattress with more support. Ain't old age fun? Janet
